Google+ Hangout – Roni Zeiger and Britt Johnson, Wednesday, August 21st

 In Uncategorized

Join us here on Wednesday, August 21 at 8pm ET | 7pm CT | 5pm PT for a live hangout with Dr. Roni Zeiger and Britt Johnson. We’ll broadcast the hangout via Google+. You can bookmark this page and return here on the 21st to watch live.

In early 2013 Roni Zeiger, MD proclaimed that patients are micro-experts in their own diseases. He and his partners at Smart Patients are building a platform to help patients collaborate as a network of experts. Roni is the former Chief Health Strategist at Google where he led efforts ranging from Google Flu Trends to Symptom Search.

This year, at Stanford Medicine X, Dr. Zeiger will lead a master class on product design for health.

Britt Johnson is a 2012 Medicine X ePatient and a member of the 2013 Medicine X ePatient Advisory Board. She has been featured in Medicine X Films, and blogs about her experience as a patient with rheumatoid arthritis at TheHurtBlogger.

We asked Roni and Britt to join us for the next Medicine X hangout to discuss expert patients, online engagement and the benefits of physician-designers. We’ll be taking questions via a simultaneous tweetchat as well.  To participate and submit questions, follow and use the #MedX hashtag. We look forward to seeing you here on Wednesday, August 21st!

    thank you for this but actually people with long term conditions have know that they are the experts on their conditions for many years. I applaud Dr. Roni Zeiger for bringing this to the attention of his fellow medics. Hopefully it will inform the medical paradigm that we are people with a condition who are occasionally patients and step into the medical world occasionally for treatments.
    However most of the time we support ourselves and each other and now we do this increasingly online in the form of blogs, facebook, Pinterest, twitter and many other platforms. In the past we formed organisations and charities and met up together to inform each other.
    Best wishes with your venture, please remember we are people first and hardly ever patients.
